This show gets a tentative 5/5 for an excellent pilot, definite hook, though I’m dubious about the flashbacks as a narrative tool

Lyrics:

I remember when Sam went to Hell first time
Saying, “Let me go, Dean, I’ll jump in,” ‘cause like
Apocalypse was starting if he didn’t
When the devil possessed him. (Sam!)
Then he came right back again and said
“Hey, Bro, I’m not dead, been hunting a year, let’s go.”
Remember how that lasted for a while?
I say, “What’s wrong, Sam?” we argue, we call Cas, “He’s Soulless.”

It’s been seasons since, I think the writers forgot someone
And it’s been seasons since, but this time I’ve realized it, I’ve realized it

We are never ever ever saving Adam ever,
We are never ever ever saving Adam ever,
He’s been dead for four years and we haven’t tried at all
But we are never ever ever ever saving Adam ever

Like, ever…

I’m really gonna miss him picking fights
with me cause Dad did some shit. The kid’s alright
Though he was kinda abducted and left behind
With some fat ass angel that’s much cooler than mine

It’s been seasons since, I think the writers forgot someone
And it’s been seasons since, but this time I’ve realized it, I’ve realized it

We are never ever ever saving Adam ever,
We are never ever ever saving Adam ever,
He’s been dead for four years and we haven’t tried at all
But we are never ever ever ever saving Adam ever

Ooh, yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Oh oh oh

I used to think that death was forever there
And I used to say, “The dead should stay down there…”
Uggg… so Death calls me up and he’s like, “Adam’s staying dead,”
And I’m like… “I just… He’s still stuck in the Cage, you know, like,
Are we never saving Adam ever? Like, ever?”

No!

We are never ever ever saving Adam ever,
We are never ever ever saving Adam ever,
He’s been dead for four years and we haven’t tried at all
But we are never ever ever ever saving Adam ever

We, ooh, saving Adam ever, ohhh,
We, ooh, Saving Adam ever

He’s been dead for four years and we haven’t tried at all
But we are never ever ever ever saving Adam ever

THIS IS IN FUCKING BRITTAIN : IN FUCKING EUROPE. WHERE THERE STILL ARE MAINLY FUCKING WHITE PEOPLE!!!!

Awwww, sweetie, no, London is 40% non-white. That means, for every six white people in London, there should be four who aren’t white.

So the cast should be 40% non-white people just in London scenes. In total, there are eight non-white people with names & lines in the show (not including s3e3, which I refuse to watch because that’s my fave Holmes story and I refuse to let them ruin my fave).

If the show even remotely matched the demographics, there shouldn’t be that many more than 12 white people. Instead we have, just off the top of my head, John, Sherlock, Mrs Hudson, Molly, Mycroft, Lestrade, Anthea, Dimmock, Anderson, Jim, two of Moriarty’s snipers, that dude with the creepy crush on Soo Lin, the cabbie, Mr Holmes, Mrs Holmes, that scientist who blew himself up, the Scottish innkeeper, the dude who faked his death, the talk show lady, talk show lady’s brother, the nerds from the Geek Interpreter case, the little girls whose grandpa died, the pink lady, the dude who went to get the umbrella and his friend, Molly’s boyfriend (Tom? Todd?), Sarah, Irene, Mary, Irene’s weird henchman who picked up John, Irene’s girlfriend Kate, the guy with the hat, the boss person at the museum, Sebastian, lady who commissioned the fake painting, dead guard, dead guard’s roommate, train guy, train guy’s fiancee, train guy’s fiancee’s brother… That’s, what, 44, just from my memory? Making us at about 15%, which may be the demographics for all of England, but a city as diverse as London should have a lot more POC’s than that.

Also, since it doesn’t seem to stick with y’all, racism in casting isn’t just about numbers, it’s about portrayal. So if, out of all the Asians portrayed in the show, all but one are involved in a Chinese crime syndicate, that’s racist. If, out of all the (read: three) black people in the show, one is vilified, one is a helpless villain, and one is a useless therapist, that’s shitty representation.

For good representation, you need to have POC characters who are integral to the plot, some who are good, some who are evil, and then you use them as background characters.

i’m recovering from a book right now pls send help

wow I didn’t know fuckin chocolate eggs were gendered

OKAY LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT THE FUCKING PINK EGGS.

I work at a concession stand in an ice rink. We sell a bunch of chocolate bars and snacks and shit including Kinder Surprise eggs.

So one day this woman comes up to the counter with her two little kids, a girl who’s probably about 6 or 7 and a little boy, maybe 3 or 4. The mom asks what they want, the little girl points at the Kinder eggs and says “One of those!”. I asked if she wanted the white or the pink egg. She said pink. The little boy pointed to the Kinder eggs and says “One of those!”. I asked if he wanted the white or the pink egg. He said pink. HOLY SHIT IT WAS LIKE I OPENED THE GATES OF HELL. The mom absolutely FLIPPED and was like “YOU ARE NOT GETTING THE PINK EGG IT’S ONLY FOR GIRLS. YOU CAN GET THE WHITE ONE OR NOTHING AT ALL”. The little boy looked at his mom and said “But I want the same as ______ (whatever the sister’s name was)”. The mom completely ignored him and turned to me and gave me a death glare. “He can have the white egg.”

I had to give a little boy a white egg when he wanted the pink so that he could be the same as his big sister and he started crying. The mom just reiterated that the pink egg was for girls and told him that boys don’t cry.

And this is why we shouldn’t gender fucking chocolate eggs.

This is actually a relatively new thing, originally Kinder Eggs were all white like the ones on the left. I don’t know at what point they decided to make ‘girl’s’ Kinder Eggs, but I do not like it.

Holy shit do not even get me started on how moms constantly police their sons’ masculinity. I’ve seen mothers do it WAY more often than fathers.

I used to work at a bakery that specialized in creating custom cakes. We had this feature where we could print out any image off the computer and put it on a cake (with rice paper). One day this lady comes in and asks for an image we had of the baby Sesame Street characters. They’re all together with cake and confetti, and she asks, “Oh, well since it’s a boy, can you please change all of the little pink confettis into blue confetti? I mean, he’s a boy, you know.”

Confetti.

The fucking confetti.

It barely covered 5% of the image.

Another instance was when a lady asked me for an image of four superheroes to put on her son’s cake because her son was turning four. She admitted to not knowing any superheroes, so I offered the most obvious choice—The Fantastic Four. I pulled up a picture of them and she goes, “Oh no no, we can’t have that. Let’s do another one.” Confused, I pulled up a Justice League one with Batman, Superman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman. Again, she said no. I asked her if she needed anything specific (she didn’t know superheroes, why was she so picky?), and she just said, “Oh, it’s just that he’s a boy, you know? We can’t have a girl superhero on his cake.”

I nearly lost my shit. I did temporarily lose my customer service face and ask why, women have been superheroes all the time, Wonder Woman is iconic, etc etc and she was like, “It’s just that my son has been playing with Barbie dolls lately and I really don’t want him to end up… well, you know.”

This shit has got to stop. When you teach boys that certain things are only for girls, you’re limiting them and you’re teaching them that girls or “girly things” are bad. If you want gender equality as an adult, you better make DAMN sure that you’re teaching the same thing to your kids.

So this woman did not want her son to turn out ‘you know’ and her plan for that was to get him a cake with spandex-clad manly men AND ONLY MEN on it? I don’t think she thought that one through too well…

in sociology class we were talking about gender being assigned to objects and one of the male students started saying how forward thinking he is because he buys his daughter sports equipment and “boy toys”. I asked if he’d do the same if he had a son and he said “Of course I’d buy my son sports equipment”. I clarified “No, would you buy him dolls and other toys that are thought of as being for girls”. He turned around and didn’t answer.

Parents will pat themselves on the back for letting their little girls play baseball but a little boy with a Barbie is still considered an affront to society

I was at a yard sale, selling my old Littlest Pet Shop toys. I had several little boys approach my table and play with the toys, only for their parents to insist those were girl toys and drag them away.

SO UNCOMFORTABLE.

Hello! 

I really hope that you can donate to help me go to college. 

I am currently very financially unstable and cannot afford the insane fees that universities are charging just to apply! I know that once I’m accepted into a college, I’ll be able to receive financial aid and scholarships, but as of now, I am completely unable to pay for test and application fees. 

Because of all of these expenses, I’ll be missing out on a lot of traditions that high school seniors get to participate in like school dances, trips, etc. 

Please, please, please donate and signal boost! I would greatly appreciate it!
